Good morning everyone. I'm starting the Nuggets waaaay late today, I had some things holding me up, so I'm going to rush through this intro. I have a few links for you today, not a ton, but some good, quality reading for you. So far we've got no more contract talks, but I'm hoping we'll hear something in the next day or two. Today on NinersNation, I'm not entirely sure what we've gotgoing on, I'll be playing it, most likely, by ear. Beyond that, I recommend going back and reading Danny's latest stat post - it's a behemoth of a post, but always worth a read. Lastly, I apologize if I have to post these late, as I type this, it's 2:50 AM so unless I can do everything else in ten minutes, it's going to be a little late. Let's see if I can do it. Enjoy.
Maiocco continues the round table of sorts by taking a look at the Cardinals, the links to the other blogs are at the bottom of that post. (CSNBayArea.com)
There's some sort of investigation going on with Frank Gore concerning a party thrown. NCAA students, agents and the like - I don't like any of it. Read up on it for yourself here. (ESPN.com)
Frank Gore is ranked as the 5th best fantasy player for 2010. I don't pick 49ers players in fantasy, so yeah. I bet he'll beast for whoever does pick him, though. (49ers.com)
Alex Smith is (likely) making an unlikely turnaround for the 49ers. It's pretty crazy to think he might actually have a good year, after what we've been through, no? At the beginning of last year there was zero confidence in him at all. Now he just might be something. (Yahoo.com)
Here is Sando's latest mailbag post, always a good read to check out. A pretty long one today, as well. (ESPN.com)
Niners new o-line coaches earning their keep. I sincerely hope so, I have a lot of confidence in his line. Let's hope it's good. (ProFootballWeekly.com)
Vernon Davis is going to be hosting a 'Curling With The Stars' tournament. How about that? (SB Nation Bay Area)
Brunner's Blog: Ready for Camp. Always a good piece to read from the official website. (49ers.com)
Rival Blog Buzz Revenge Of The Birds continues their best of the west segment. Nothing new at Field Gulls. Turf Show Times has a post about the Rams interest in Mizzou receiver Danario Alexander.
Today On Niners Nation (All times pacific and subject to change)
7:00 AM - I should have a confidence post here.
11:00 AM - I haven't gotten into contact with the other writers yet to see if they have anything for today, but if not, this spot will be about the worst player on the 49ers.
2:00 PM - Same as above, if I don't hear from anyones - this may be a player profile or an 'At Least We're Not'
